Crown Signs Renewable Energy Deal Significantly Expanding Coverage of Its Electricity Consumption in Europe

Crown Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCK) has entered a 15-year Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) with Enel Green Power España (EGPE), Endesa’s renewable energy subsidiary, securing renewable electricity from a new PV project built in Badajoz, Spain. This deal will cover all of Crown’s current operational footprint in European countries that are part of the Alliance of Issuing Bodies (AIB), which manages the European Energy Certificate System, allowing the Company to advance in its Twentyby30™ sustainability program.

The PV project will contribute to Crown’s overall goal of stronger corporate stewardship. To initiate this latest effort around responsible solutions, Crown worked with Schneider Electric, the leading adviser in corporate renewable energy procurement and carbon management, on the project selection and VPPA negotiation.

This agreement is Crown’s first VPPA in Europe and demonstrates the Company’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to act locally. The project is expected to produce an annual output of 285,100 Megawatt hours (MWh), of which Crown is contracted for around 70%—saving the CO2 emissions equivalent of nearly 40,000 homes’ electricity use for one year. Scheduled to start operation in October 2025, the renewable energy supply from the PV power plant follows Crown’s earlier renewable energy project designed to address decarbonization and sustainability goals.
